In this scenario the main challenge is to develop biotechnology-based tools to be used by the breeding programs with an efficient cost/benefit relationship.||Strategically, the use of biotechnologies in the plant breeding programs will focus on the improvement of current selection programs, and enhancing the integration of new transgenic genotypes into the locally adapted germplasm.||The purpose of this presentation is to design a practical approach to utilize these technologies by the plant breeders and biotechnologists of INIA. Our goal is to build a bridge that unites the challenges from the emerging technologies with the demands from plant breeding programs in Uruguay.
